Yankees acquire infielder J.D. Davis in trade with Athletics

The New York Yankees made a trade on Sunday, acquiring veteran infielder J.D. Davis and cash considerations from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for infielder Jordan Groshans.

Davis, 31, was designated for assignment five days ago. In 39 games this season, he is hitting .236/.304/.366 with four homers and five RBI.


Over 634 big-league games, Davis has hit .259/.341/.427 with 72 homers and 220 RBI.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-hander Nick Burdi was transferred to the 60-day injured list.

The expectation is that Davis will be added to the 26-man roster before Tuesday’s Subway Series game against the Mets at Citi Field, and Oswald Peraza will be sent back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
